- ... This study sought to distinguish liquid-(LAB) and detached (SAB₁) and undetached (SAB₂) solid-associated bacteria through their fatty acid (FA) and purine base (PB) profiles. Fatty acids and PB were also evaluated as internal microbial markers for estimating microbial biomass associated with rumen particles. Four merino rams fitted with rumen cannulae and fed dehydrated alfalfa pellets provided ru ...
